My name is Beth Hughes, and first and foremost, thank you for stopping by! I’m a technology-loving, high school English teacher whose mission is to reintroduce her students to the love of reading through authentic, real-world tasks. This is my 21st year as a high school English teacher (and 16th year at WMHS).
Now, before you try to do the math to figure out how old that makes me, I’m 25.
Or at least, my husband, Eric, says I don’t look a day over 25, and that, my friends, is why I’ve been married to that smart, smart man for 21 years. We have two children, Anna & William, and we purchased and have been renovating my childhood home for 9 years and counting.
I dappled in higher education and management before becoming a high school teacher, and I feel Blessed to have stumbled onto something that I absolutely love. Yates had it right: “Education is not the filling of a pail but the lighting of a fire.” And I’m grateful to those students and colleagues who have kept the fire in this lifelong learner ablaze!
